The parties involved in the case Vinocur v. RM Acquisition, LLC d/b/a Rand McNally executed a Consent Judgment on June 22, 2018.  In this matter, citizen enforcer Laurence Vinocur alleged that RM Acquisition, LLC dba Rand McNally (“Rand McNally”) sold vinyl/PVC cases for electronic devices containing the phthalate chemical di(2-ethylhexyl)phthalate (“DEHP”) in the State of California without providing the requisite health hazard warnings.  
As part of the agreement, Rand McNally agreed not to sell any vinyl/PVC cases for electronic devices in California after the Santa Clara County Superior Court approves the Judgment, unless the bags contain no more than 1,000 parts per million of DEHP when analyzed using state or federally approved testing methodologies OR have Proposition 65 warnings provided.
The Consent Judgment required settlement payments of up to $29,000, divided therein between civil penalties, 75% of which are paid to California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, and compensation to whistleblower Vinocur and his counsel for their successful enforcement of this matter in the public interest.
